to the president coming up next hour. millions of americans have already voted in places like florida, ohio, and in georgia. but that is just a fraction of the total, which makes the next three days pretty darn important for the candidates. joining me now, as she does at this time every week, is cnn contributor maria cardona. and from miami this morning, cnn contributor anna navarro. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> maria, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're going to go into a nose spin and we don't want to suffer from political schizophrenia. my advice is that we don't obsess about polls because it really could lead to temporary insanity between now and november 6th. i just saw two polls last night from florida. one mitt romney six points up on barack obama, and the sec
doubt about tomorrow's outcome. the president in ohio, wisconsin and iowa. governor romney in florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire. running mates and surrogates also dotting the swing state map. governor romney's got kid rock, bruce springsteen is campaigning with the president, but in the end, it is down to the candidates and often to the candidates' last vocal cord. >> now's the time to keep pressing forward. educate our kids and train new workers. bring troops home. care for our veterans. broaden opportunity. grow our middle class. restore our democracy mange sure that no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter how you started out, no matter what your last name is, you can make it here in america if you try. wisconsin, that's why i need your vote. and if you're willing to work with me again and knock on some doors with me, make some phone calls for me, turn out for me, we'll win wisconsin. we'll win this election. >> he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance in a day or two. >> millions of people
development, most of the country enjoying very good weather, parts of wisconsin, florida, not so much, but, generally, the rule of thumb on this is, if the weather is good, advantage democrats. they are more inclined to go to the polls and less so when the weather is bad. that is the old saying. do you buy that? >>guest: i do, the voter intensity is on romney's side. so, more of the romney supporters are willing to stand in line in bad weather, wisconsin and florida obviously battleground states, so, having good weather across the country is an advantage for obama but having some rain in wisconsin and florida could help romney. they used to rain in florida but that is it. the enthusiasm is on the g.o.p. side. >>neil: you talk about usually voting and versus later voting with better than 30 million americans having already voted and that changes the cram ma. significantly so? do you want to break it down? >>guest: the obama campaign is nervous about the youth vote and excited about president obama in 2008 and less so four years later so they were urging students to vote early before electio
, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
from 2008. in florida nearly 4.5 million people have voted early or by absentee coming very close to the number from last time. president obama voted early this year. he'll do some swing state interviews and then play in his traditional election day basketball game while awaiting the returns from chicago. mr. romney has added two last-minute campaign stops in ohio and pennsylvania after he votes in massachusetts. running mate paul ryan will vote in wisconsin before joining romney in boston. and vice president joe biden will vote in delaware before joining the president in chicago. nbc's tracie pots is in cincinnati, ohio. she has the details on the candidates' final frantic day of campaigning. tracie, good morning to you. >> reporter: we're at a polling place in ohio. already a busy day. a busy crowd back and forth. lots of people planning to vote here in ohio, but they weren't the first to vote this morning. for the first time ever and with its lowest turnout in almost 50 years, a tie this morning in tiny dixville, notch. just after midnight they cast five votes for president oba
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a
, we may be looking at another recession as well. >> reporter: his election campaign stops in florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire are critical. while they carry a combined total of 62 electoral votes, any one of them could make or break his chances. and he's not finished yet. a top campaign official confirms he will make more stops on election day. back in ohio and in pennsylvania. a state romney suddenly sees moving his way. but complicating his message, his final targeted states feature unemployment rates that have plummeted in recent months. florida's governor rick scott says that's no thanks to the president. >> guess what? the biggest drop in unemployment in the country is in our great state of florida. and you know what? government didn't do it. you did it. >> what we see now is an administration and a presidency littered with broken promises. >> reporter: romney's running mate, paul ryan, who's largely stayed out of the spotlight in the final days of the campaign, has started to ratchet up the rhetoric. on a conference call with religious conservatives, ryan warned the pr
of the united states. >> he hit crucial states from florida, virginia and ohio. he states that he is a businessman that he knows what it takes. >> from day one i will go to get americans back to work. >> the campaign continues on election day and romney has to more meet and greet stops. a state that many state it is the key to the white house. >> pennsylvania is one and michigan is one. his running mate paul is end--he stated that they will keep working to keep energy go on to the polls close. >> mitt romney has been stating that his campaign appearances that he wants people to get out and vote. he cast his voted to about 10 mi. of away from where i am right now. he is open to rein in these critical electoral votes. >> it is out of my hands now and it is in your hands. the single most powerful force and our democracy is you. moving this country for begins with you. >> and the president is getting a little emotional when he was speaking in iowa late last night. he is in chicago today. while the nation decides whether he should spend another four years in office. the president and t
voters have been identified as democrats in ohio, nevada, iowa, florida, and north carolina according to the associated press. republicans have the edge in colorado. let's turn to bob shrum, professor of public policy at nyu and contributor to the daily beast. great to have you with us tonight. let's leave the names out of it for a moment. obama and romney. let's just take candidate a and candidate b. who would you want to be right now with the numbers playing? >> you would want to be candidate a assuming that's the unmentionable who is the president of the united states. he has a lot of roots to 270 electoral votes. if you look at candidate b, candidate b isn't even going to florida in the next few days. you can interpret that in one of two ways. a thinks he's already got it won, and the polls don't show that at all, or alternatively he thinks he has to bet he hasn't won, that he can't carry ohio, so he has to go to pennsylvania as john mccain did, as other republicans have over the last 12, 20 years, and they never carried the state. >> so why -- with that number, and the -- with th
of time zones. on the eastern time zone with polls closing teen 7:00 and 8:30 in florida, the romney campaign think those safe. virginia a toss up. ohio, the crucial battleground state, both put more money and time in ohio than any state. romney campaign believes they have a shot in pennsylvania. romney and ryan are going to pittsburgh as we speak and to new hampshire, all the polls will close, first, and you can see each of them a key battleground state. and the question of the possibility of what happens later in the evening. romney campaign has set aside the emphasize on iowa and nevada where the president had a bit of an edge in the polls. they are particularly focused on colorado. romney campaign thinks colorado could be the opportunity west of the mississippi to pick up a key battleground state mountain time and late because of how close it is. historically, neither candidate has been able to break out of the polls longer than any time in the history of modern campaign, this is the closest we have seen. the amount of money is exceeding anything anyone imagined and a doesn't pos
in florida, another one showing obama up by five points. [laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but what the poll has been doing in particular is looking more at what it was in 2008, which political pollsters will tell you, it will not be at that point. it needs to be somewhere near where the republicans were in 2008. host: the annual crystal ball contest from "the washington post." jim cramer, predicting that mitt romney will get 98 electoral votes, the president, 440? he is the only one predicting a landslide for the president. guest: he is the only one predicting that. i am a democratic partisan, i would love to see that, but i do not think it will be close to that. host: only two are predicting that mitt romney will win, the other 11 sayin
big states: ohio, florida, and virginia. ohio being number one. i think florida is a republican state with 29 electoral votes and that is why they spent with ohio as 18 and that is why they have gone after the 13 electoral votes in virginia. hadn't gone democratic since 1964. linden banees johnson wanted it. sixty% he got in northern virginia. the bellweather counties or prince william and low den. he got 58% in prince william, in 2009, the republican mcdonald did very well in the southwest. the democrats are getting clobbered in cold country and they have to concentrate in getting out the african- american vote, which is very large, the same level of enthusiasm. i heard of all of the state battleground polls, this is a tie. it's going to be contested to the end. >> when you look at both of these campaigns tonight, the barack obama and mitt romney facades, when the staffers go to bed tonight, what is the biggest concern for obama and romney? >> the biggest concern for obama is independent voters neither democrats or republicans. romney was way ahead. you remember, tom, i discussed he
tomorrow, president in i had high, wisconsin, the governor in florida, virginia, earlier in new hampshire. in the end it is down to the candidate and often to the candidate's last vocal chord. >> fired up. ready to go. fired up, ready to go. >> you know, if anyone wants to know where the energy is, anyone following american politics wants to know where the energy is, look right here in this room. >> each candidate trying to get even one more person to vote tomorrow. millions of people have already voted. early voting has been a blessing and a curse. in ohio and florida, limited hours made for long lines over the weekend. take a look at that. that could make post election legal battles if either state is pivotal. we'll talk to our legal analyst jeffrey toobin about that. that is a very real possibility. with me here tonight john king, also political analyst david gergen, gloria borger. ari fleischer, an occasional unpaid political adviser for the romney campaign. paul begala senior adviser for president obama's senior pac. i want you to listen to a clip and get your response. the first one
healthcare to learn about medicare plans that may be right for you. call now. jenna: we've talked a lot about florida, also pennsylvania, but florida this campaign season. the electoral votes in florida at 29, more than any other battleground state, which is one of the reasons we've talked so often with steve voscay, the tallahassee bureau chief of the ""tampa bay times"." you've covered elections in your day, what strikes you about this one. >> it's back to the ground game and a high turn out for both candidates, both romney and obama, the rain has moved through here. the weather is improving. this could be the first election in florida where we break the 9 million vote barrier. there's never been 9 million or more people vote in anee collection and the secretary of state here this morning predicted a record turn out because more than 4.5 million people have already voted. jenna: wow. >> about hatch the votes are in the bag so to speak. jenna: 9 million passing that mark would be significant, because we're talking so much about voter turn out. to you, what are you watching the rest of the day as to
, michigan, florida, new hampshire, getting the vast majority of political events. of course in these last 48 hours, all of the candidates back in ohio and virginia. this programming note, we will have a final campaign rally by the president where he campaigned in iowa. we will have the final appearance in new hampshire of mitt romney tomorrow evening. of course, we are here live all day today as well. michigan, independent line. our question, who is going to win and why? caller: i think that president obama will win. good morning, steve. i think the president will win by a good margin. i have always been a conservative republican. you can see what the republican party has done to people like ron paul, and he was not even given a voice at the national convention. i think that the system is corrupt and people have no choice but to vote for obama. host: thank you for the call. this comment -- host: "the new york daily news," supporting barack obama in 2008, supporting mitt romney in their editorial. inside it says -- "our choice for the future." host: that is from "of the new york daily news" e
virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> good morning. look at that, how beautiful. we are here. we are here. what are we, a day away? this is so exciting. good morning, everyone. >> he said it wasn't going to be close. and then he said it was going to be close. maybe he was talking about president clinton. >> it's monday, november 5th, the day before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it
in alall the crucial places. those swing states. martin savage is in ohio, john in florida. ted roland in wisconsin. miguel marquez is in nevada. once again, ohio critical battleground state. the state's 18 electoral votes are the second biggest swing state prize behind florida. tell us, first of all, the strategy for the president and mitt romney in ohio. we are just talking just hours away from when people actually start voting. >> you're right. there's a sense here that things are really building to something very critical, but until the strategy question you, and it's simple. they have to get in the last word, and then their organization is getting out the vote, and it's the getting out of the vote, especially in ohio and the other swing states, that is going to be key. organization. that's truly going to play a factor. the lindz were big other the weekend, but they have been building throughout the day today, and you really get a sense from people here that they know ohio is a critical state, and this is a crucial time to all of them. they've been serving hot coffee to people in l
monolithic voting group. vicky, i want to turn to you, the florida numbers are particularly fascinating approximate this. we were looking at a recent poll from the miami herald that looks at sort of obama and romney support. when you include cuban americans in the counting, president obama is leading by a slight margin, 51%. if, however, you look at it with cuban americans excluded from it, then all of a sudden president obama it leading at about 65%. obviousli obviously, that's an krags indication that you end up with national origin and other issues. >> i think florida is a microcosm for that diversity. in south florida, the miami area, you have a cuban american vote that's very republican. regardless of the generation. then you go into the i-4 corridor and you see the explosion of the puerto rican vote. interestingly enough, you have democrats but also a growing number of independents. then if you go even further, you have a smattering of mexican americans. what is the trend for the future there. it's not mexican americans in texas. it's going to be puerto ricans and cuban americans.
fighting for florida electoral votes it will be close. in 2008 president obama beat mccain. but it shows mitt romney is slightly ahead there. >> poll precinct workers are showing up first voters will line up. we are on the west side of the critical i-4 corridor. and the south florida miami-dade and brower tend to vote for democratic nominee and northern and panhandle a lock for the republican. and that's why the swing corridor is so critical. four years ago obama won boy 7 points and before that bush bet kerry by 7 points and there is a lot of enthusiasm and competition between mitt romney and president obama. early lines of and days of voters in broward and palm beach county and yesterday, another 45,000 early votes state wide and select counties allowed in person absentee ballot and technically and legally it was set to end 7:00 p.m. democrats filed suit and tried to extend the hours and governor scott never agreed to that and those were not extended. here are the early look. floridians. four and half million floridians have already voted in the presidential election . there is roughly
the summer. >> rose: let me ask about florida, john harris, and pennsylvania. >> it looks like florida is most likely in romney's camp. not certain. it seems to me that if obama wins florida he's going to win a bunch of other states and we'll have a map that looks more like 2008 than we've been thinking this last month or so where hi would win most of the state he is won in 2008 minus north carolina and indiana. that's an early night for us all. althoughs pennsylvania better than i do. i don't think it's been awe thenltally in play. i think there was a series of head fakes going on but that's never been a central battground. >> rose: mark? >> well, they're winning pennsylvania because this is the first campaign where no one has to make choices about money because they have enough to spend and they had extra money and there wasn't any other place to put and the public polls make it clear it's closer. the president will win by a more narrow margin than four years ago. i think that the -- i agree with matthew the fundamentals matter most of all. ohio is a tricky place, though, because whi
an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we have two new nbc wall street marist polls out for you. president obama holds a 6-point lead among likely voters in ohio. 51 to 45%. then in the sunshine state the president gets support of 49% from likely voters. mitt romney coming in with 47%. let's head to mentor, ohio where the president is holding a campaign stop. we're following very closely with nbc's chris janzen's help. chris a good day to you. let's get to what the president is saying in his final pitch to the ohio voters. why is he there in mentor, specifically? >> reporter: good afternoon, alex. there is one group, one reason why the president is here. he's white work class voters. it's a group where the president has been behind nationally, having a tough time getting to 40%. but it's closette here closest . five points separated him and mitt romney in working class voters. take a look at the statistics in mentor. i know this very well. i grew up in lake county. 95% white. $61,000 median income. that's about $10,000 above the national average. it's th
